Anaerobic digestion extracts more value from our organic waste (including inedible food waste, manures, wastewater) and break/cover crops than any alternative
Biogas Action seeks to support the development of small scale on-farm anaerobic digestion. The project provides free impartial advice to farmers and landowners on using farm waste for sustainable soil and nutrient management, reduction of green-house gas emissions, and energy production. Dairy farming, in particular, is very well suited to farm scale AD, as it produces large volumes of manure and slurry and also has relatively high energy use.
We would like to hear from you if you are a farmer or landowner that wants to:
• convert their wastes into fertiliser
• generate renewable energy
• improve soil quality
• protect animal health
• reduce pollution risks
Strategy - A Vision for Small Scale On-farm Anaerobic Digestion
The Strategy has come about following discussions with key stakeholders from agricultural and anaerobic digestion industries and regulators in Wales, and represents the views of members of the group. Severn Wye Energy Agency, under the Biogas Action project, has facilitated these discussions and compiled this report as a recommendation to Welsh Government to introduce an Anaerobic Digestion Strategy for Wales. Download of the strategy is available on the right.
